Canadian strike authorized

by David Zatz on

Unifor workers have authorized a strike against any of the Detroit Three automakers if they can’t reach an agreement next month. The union represents 23,000 auto workers.  Over 97% of workers at each of the automakers authorized the strike — including 99% of FCA workers.


The union’s president has said that they would strike if they did not get promises of future products at Brampton, Oshawa (GM), and Windsor (Ford). FCA’s Windsor plant is not in question, after a major renovation; it is the sole source of all FCA minivans. He also said that both FCA and Ford seemed willing to deal, but GM had refused to talk with Unifor about the future of Oshawa.

GM, Ford, and FCA have Canadian headquarters on the same street within a brief walk of each other.  See Unifor’s statement.
